    Chickens start to lay when they are approximately 20 - 25 weeks old, but this can vary from chicken to chicken. Pure breed chickens usually take longer to start laying than hybrids. When the chicken’s comb and the wattles become a vibrant pink/red, this is usually an indication that it's about to start laying.
